The idea was inspired by the Black Scorpion character, the masked performer who ended up being revealed as Ric Flair.

A lot of fans are hoping that WWE brings back Ric Flair as a permanent on screen character. If they decide to do that, then they will not have him for a week in May. The former world heavyweight champion has been booked for one man shows all across Europe. Flair will be entertaining audiences in Scotland, Newcastle, Leeds, Leicester, Portsmouth, London and Derby. Further dates could be added by his agent from now and then.
